Glitz met Glam as Kisumu Fashion Week Turned 5 Last Weekend

Kisumu Fashion Week – KFW is the annual fashion signature event in the lakeside City of Kisumu. Humbly started 5 years ago, the event has not only created fashion icons locally, but has connected residents to the whole country, and provided fashion designers, marketers and other service providers with clients from Africa and yonder!

KFW at 5 event this year attracted designers from East and South Africa. Actually, the Antananarivo-Madagascar based designer closed the event with his suave elegant showpieces.

When we talk of Madagascar, some of us only know of the box-office toon film. Madagascar the movie is a 2005 American computer-animated comedy film. The film tells the story of four Central Park Zoo animals who have spent their lives in blissful captivity and are unexpectedly shipped back to Africa, and getting shipwrecked on the island of Madagascar.

Who knew that this country that most of us got introduced to through film had such awesome taste in fashion!

It was a beauty galore, as everyone in attendance tried to outdo each other in style and makeup. Even as was put across by Michael Onyango (the Minister Communications Information and Technology – County Government of Kisumu), Kisumu definitely has g0t swag 🙂

Here below are some of the photos from the event.
